Steps to create a JAVA web client
Posted on 2006-10-24
Im using JDK 1.4 and Im trying to figure out how to create a Java Web Service Client. I have tried some examples but basically I have the concepts down, but so far coming up zeroes on getting one to implement.
Im developing using IBM WSAD 5.1, and will be creating a java client gui to connect against a web service. My confusion comes first of all it looks like there should be some type of utility to read a WSDL and then create the web client automatically (skeleton). In theory I shouldnt need to know the web service Im hitting against so I dont need that specific web service and web service client jar's, correct? For Example since Im using WSAD, I could you its web service client jars and then go against a web logic web service without any changes to my web service client. Then take the same exact WSAD web service client and then go against a .NET service that did the same exact thing and had the same exact methods and return types.
Looking for a simple tutorial that I can walk through. I have tried the Sun sight tutorial and that requires loading totally different environment and different JDK's then what Im implementing.
I need some suggestions and guidance on a very, very good sight that makes this simple.
Thanks in advance...
